Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A wonderful runny honey note, deep, luxuriant. Also warmed malt loaf.
Palate: That honey note is here, also mouth feel is very much honey comb. Plenty of apples, peaches, apricots and baked fruit pudding.
Finish: Long and spicy.
Comment: This is clearly one of the distilleries to watch, great stuff.
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Sweet and slightly oily. Horlicks. Developing grass cuttings.
Palate: Quite viscous, intensely-focused summer fruits, lots of spice.
Finish: Long and drying, with a hint of aniseed and plain chocolate.
Comment: More well-chosen wood.
